Flameless Candle Wedding Table Decorating Tips and Ideas
For a rustic look with winter and Christmas as your backdrop, there are a variety of stylish flameless candles that you can use from birch to copper to colored ones that can be coordinated with your wedding color scheme. These options are:
- Birch candles
- Metallic and glitter candles
- Marbled candles
- Distressed candles
- Copper LED candles
- Flameless tealight candles
We love the natural texture of birch LED candles, which you can use to craft a centerpiece around with using elements such as pine leaves, fir, holly berries, and greenery. These beautiful candles have an attractive amber glow when set against a Christmas-inspired backdrop.
Modern, metallic flameless candles are available in silver, gold, copper, and glitter. Create a modern, rustic centerpiece by applying simple florals when using metallic candles. You can also opt for greenery or use succulents as well. They are especially striking when used on a long bare wooden reception table!
For a modern winter boho style, marbled LED candles are our pick! You can coordinate them nicely with materials like copper, concrete, or wood. But they also pair beautifully with soft accents of feathers, yarn, faux snow, or even simple greenery as you see below! Be creative with these types of candles to achieve a stylish eclectic look.
These distressed gold LED candles provide great versatility as they can be used as table decor for virtually any wedding style. Set them on a tray or wooden disc at each table with just a accent of beaded crystals, poinsettia leaves, or faux holly berries. Imagine that!
Copper LED lanterns also lend themselves elegantly as table decorations for a winter reception or rehearsal dinner held in a barn. Add some interest to the candlescape by assembling more flameless candles such as tea lights and taper candles! See how these come together with just a simple color scheme of off-white hues and green.
Achieve an ultramodern look for your table with these hurricane glass lanterns that are illuminated with LED fairy lights. Set the scene with sparkly confetti, clear beads, or glitter with these lanterns.
Simple, white flameless tea lights used in conjunction with mercury glass votives in a golden shade are a fast and easy way to decorate a Christmas reception table with a red and white color palette. As you can see, minimal decorations are required with only a few candles and a non-floral centerpiece made of baby’s breath.
Do remember that not all flameless candles are LED so be sure to read the label carefully!
